Radio Times in Review: monkey business!

Listen 00:49:13

Guests: Frans de Waal, Daniel Smith, Francine Prose

On today’s show, monkey business! First, we’ll hear from primatologist FRANS de WAAL about the morality of apes, and how their behavior gives us a better understanding of how humans have developed our notions of what’s right and what’s wrong.  We’ll also hear Marty’s interview with DANIEL SMITH, who wrote about living with anxiety in his book Monkey Mind. The book has been praised for its accurate portrayal of living and anxious life with humor and bravery.  Lastly, we’ll listen to Marty’s conversation with FRANCINE PROSE, author of the new novel Mister Monkey.  The book is a humorous account of an off-off-off Broadway production and pokes fun at the world of theater.
